Heinrich Statement on Republicans' Latest Attempt to Force a Government Shutdown

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) released the following statement today:

"The vote today in the House to sabotage ObamaCare is a vote to shutdown the government. This would be devastating for New Mexico. A government shutdown would ripple throughout the entire economy, shake consumer confidence, delay critical services for seniors and veterans, and hurt hard-working middle-class families. The American people deserve better. It is too bad House Republicans have so far refused to do what's right and pass a bill that keeps the government running."
